TeraStitcher is a free tool that enables the stitching of Teravoxel-sized tiled microscopy images even on workstations with relatively limited resources of memory (<8 GB) and processing power. It exploits the knowledge of approximate tile positions and uses ad-hoc strategies and algorithms designed for such very large datasets. The produced images can be saved into a multiresolution representation to be efficiently visualized (e.g. Vaa3D-TeraFly) and processed.



Scipion is an image processing framework for obtaining 3D models of macromolecular complexes using Electron Microscopy (3DEM). It integrates several software packages and presents a unified interface for both biologists and developers. Scipion allows you to execute workflows combining different software tools, while taking care of formats and conversions. Additionally, all steps are tracked and can be reproduced later on.


performing automatic registration for CLEM


This is an example workflow of how to perform automatic registration by

- first detecting spots in both image using wavelet segmentation (with different scale according to the image scale)

- second using Ec-Clem autofinder to register both images

Zebrafish Embryo Tool


Normalize the orientation of the images of the Zebrafish embryos.

In the documentation webpage, the aim of the workflow is to normalize the orientation of the images of the Zebrafish embryos, find the point of injection of tumor cells and measure the distribution of Cy3 stained tumor foci.

ImageJ macro implementation of the Workflow described in Ghotra et al (2012). Note that currently only the angle and orientation normalization is implemented in this version.

Sample images are linked in the documentation webpage.

IMOD is a set of image processing, modeling and display programs used for tomographic reconstruction and for 3D reconstruction of EM serial sections and optical sections. The package contains tools for assembling and aligning data within multiple types and sizes of image stacks, viewing 3-D data from any orientation, and modeling and display of the image files.

Included are two programs with graphical interface: 3dmod, for displaying and segmenting 2D images and 3D volumes; etomo, for reconstructing tomographic volumes from tilt series of images.

Processing can be distributed on multiple cores and executed in batch mode.
